Rhino: Importing and Exporting

TO EXPORT A MODEL OR DRAWING FROM RHINO:

Choose File > Export Selected or File > Export With Origin to save information in AutoCAD, Illustrator, Sketchup, .stl, and many other file formats.

File > Export With Origin is useful if you want to keep models registered (i. e., correctly aligned) between two or more software applications.


 

TO IMPORT A MODEL OR DRAWING TO RHINO:

To import a model means to place it within an existing model. Choose File > Import to import an existing digital model or drawing (AutoCAD, Illustrator, SketchUp). Make sure to select the correct file type.

You can also use File > Open to open an existing digital model in Rhino. Make sure to select the correct file type.

NOTE: Rhino will not directly open or import a Revit model. To open or import Revit information to Rhino, use AutoCAD as an intermediary.
